Who will have access to my results? Can I share my results?

You will be the only one with access to your lab test results, with the exception of Quest Diagnostics and PWNHealth (including physician and related services performed for you in connection with your purchased testing) and as otherwise noted below. Your results will not be shared with your primary doctor or other providers unless you decide to share your results directly. However, Quest Diagnostics and PWN will disclose your test results if required by law, such as to public health authorities, or as authorized by you.


For additional information, please see the PWN privacy policy and the Quest privacy policy.

Will any lab test results that my doctor ordered for me also show up in the Quest Results page?

No. But if you have a MyQuest™ account, you can log in to see the lab test results that your doctor ordered. Alternatively, contact your doctor’s office directly.

How do I know what my results mean? What if I have questions about my results?

Your purchase includes the option to discuss your test results with a PWNHealth physician at no extra cost. However, it is your responsibility to ask your doctor what your test results mean. Quest urges you to share your results with your doctor to make the best decisions for your health.

What if I am interested in speaking with a physician?

Included with your purchase is the opportunity to speak with a PWN physician about any of your lab test results. In some states, the PWN physician will be able to provide treatment for some conditions.
